Trevathan collected 109 tackles, two interceptions, a touchdown and six passes defended in 2015. He followed up with 22 tackles and a pass defensed in the playoffs.
Whether or not Denver keeps its leading tackler will likely depend on the team's success in resigning other key free agents. Locking up Von Miller, Brock Osweiler and Malik Jackson would leave little cap room for Trevathan. A player like Jackson moving elsewhere, however, could mean a return for the former sixth-round pick. Trevathan has led the Broncos in tackles in two of the past three seasons and figures to be a major factor both racking up tackles and in coverage as a 3-4 inside backer or 4-3 Will wherever he plays in 2016.
